"Being an avid fan of O Yuki Conjugate (whose members contributed to this effort) and already owning Vol. 2 of ASMG's "Slim Westerns," I ordered this disc blindly, thinking that it would be along the same lines of its predecessors. What a mistake! While at times this collection recalls David Byrne & Brian Eno's "My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts" (especially the cuts that feature rants from fundamentalist Christian preachers), the hellfire-and-damnation preaching grates on one's nerves -- and the preaching is plentiful! Ugh. I can't imagine why anyone would want to repeatedly subject themselves to such negativity, but apparently the blokes in Small, Good Thing found it worth preserving here. The music would fare better on its own as instrumentals, fitting somewhere in the genre of trance/lounge. I'll be sure to pre-audition any future discs from this group before slapping down my bucks on the table. I suggest you do the same."
